June 20, 2022: Eleven tourists were stuck in a cable car that stopped midway in Himachal Pradesh's Parwanoo on Monday afternoon. Seven people have so far been rescued in an ongoing operation, officials said.



"The technical team of the Timber Trail operator has been deployed and police team is monitoring the situation," ANI quoted the superintendent of police as saying.



A team of the National Disaster Response Force was also at the spot.



The cable car is a popular feature of the Timber Trail private resort, about 35 kilometres from Chandigarh on the route to Kasauli and Shimla. It is frequented by people from across the region as Parwanoo is at the cusp of Himachal Pradesh with Haryana, Punjab and Chandigarh.
